Another renlon of the mirjy stories told 
concerning the staff usually connected with 
•> place of amusement tn a small town, was 
related by an adrance agent of a company 
touring the middle West 

He had written to the local manager of 
a theatre In one of these towni that be 
bad only half an boar to attend to all mat- 
ter! connected with the one-night perform- 
ance In that place. The reason for the 
•hortneaa of time to apare waa that be waa 
obliged to make certain train connection! 
oot of the place In order to get to another 
point that game day. 

in view of tbla be aaked the manager, aa 
a apectal favor, to arrange to have the dif- 
ferent men necessary for him to tee. await 
the arrival of the train at the depot, and 
there transact bta buiinesa. 

On alighting from the train a man of the 
usual country town type, advanced to meet 
blm, at the aame time Inquiring If be were 
net the "ihow agent" 

"Tea," waa the reply, "I am, and I anp- 
poee yoo're the manager of the theatre." 

"Thftt'a me." acquiesced the man. 

"Well, I aee yoo're on hand, according to 
my request, and I'm much obliged, for It will 
Mve me atopplng over night," said the agent 
"III go into the baggage room there and ar- 
range my business with the transfer man, 
then I'll aee the others." 

"Locked," tersely exdnlmed the manager, 
"an* I're got the key." 

"Where will I find hlmT" aaked the agent, 
and when Informed by tbe manager that he 
attended to transfer business, the traveler 
began to realise that be bad perhaps en- 
countered one of those men-of-many-calllngs, 
so often met by the adrance man. Then, 
looking around the depot platform, In quest 
of tbe others he had asked to meet blm 
there, and seeing no one except tbe mana- 
ger, he said : 

"Did you speak to the bill poster, the 
atage manager, tbe newspaper representa- 
tive P« 

"Fes, I told 'em all," Interrupted tbe man- 
ager, "an' they're all here on band." 

"Where}" asked the agent with a smile, 
now fully realising the situation. To which 
queatlon tbe man, with an answering smile, 

"I'm him 1" 

Among the quickest wltted of vaudeville 
teadllners Is Baritone J. A Id rich LIbbey. 
When be drops In at any of the haunts of 
those In bis Hoe of work, his confreres 
usually expect a new Joke, or an old one 
cleverly retold. When be makes what may 
seem an Innocent atatement those who 
know blm well seldom "bite" at It, for 
fear of "getting tbe laugh." 

A few days ago, during a little flurry of 
"tbe beautiful," he stepped Into Lletse's 
music store, and found a merry crowd of 
vaudeville performers discussing tbe acta 
and turns of some of their professional 

"Speaking of acta," exclaimed LIbbey, 
after listening to the others a few minutes, 
"I've a bully new act, called 'The Twelve 
Snowflakee.* " 

"Ah," said an Interested member of tbe 
group, "that's s great title — bow did tbe 
act goT 

"Great I" answered tbe big baritone, "that 
Is — until tbe sun came out" 

Barry Helms, tbe magician and Juggler 
of vaudeville fame, tells how be "got even" 
with ■ local peat during a depot wait at a 
amall junction place, where one of the lead- 
ing Industries consisted of ft "a!iell game," 
conducted by a one legged adventurer. 

Tbe company bad tbrea hours to "kill," 
and It took bat a small portion of that time 
to exhaust the local attractions, which son* 
slsted of two hotels, five saloons, a few 
stores and dwellings. 

Borne traveling men played the game with 
the one legged owner of tbe shells and the 
mystifying "pea," which Is tbe name ap- 
plied to the little rubber ball used In this 
Interesting pastime with the shells, They 
did It more to pass away tbe tedious time 
than with any hope of winning, and small 
amounts only were put up. Naturally most 
of this. went to the dealer, who In this way 
made enough to secure frugal living and an 
occasional drink, besides laying sway a trifle 
for future reference. 

The little group around the barrel, which 
strved nn table, was soon increased by Helms 
nnd his friends, some of whom contributed 
In the aggregate quite a nice addition to 
the wealth of tbe one legged proprietor of 
tbe gome. One of them was so very sure 
each time the shells were manipulated that 
after a abort time he found himself sepa- 
rated from something over Ave dollars. 
About this time Helms thought he would get 
In a little of bis own floe work and get back 
aomethlng for bli friend, so placing bis 
finger on one of tbe delusive shells, he said : 

"Bay, Mr. Operator, I'll bet you f 10 tbe 
pea la under tbla shell." 

"Put your money down on tbe barrel 
then," said tbe owner of It, and when tbe 
magician bad done so, the operator added : 
"Wby don't you mske It $10 more, w> long 
ss you're so sure.'* 

"Done I" said Helms, "that Is If you'll 
let me lift the shell myself." 

"That's easy," exclaimed the operator, cot. 
erlng the magician's "two tens" wltb a 
twenty dollar blU. 

Then, as Helms lifted the shell, disclosing 
lbs "pea," tbe owner of tbe game gave a 
great gasp and turned pale, for he himself 

had the little ball deftly "palmed" In his 
own band. Quickly realising that be bad 
been outwitted at bla own game, be con- 
cluded that discretion should be bis cue, so, 
without protest, he betook himself away 
from tbe vicinity, while Helms bsndtd to bis 
friend tbe amount be had lost 


Bert Hudson, tbe Jolly comedian, observed 
during his travels some odd notices tacked 
up In a little "oppery ball" In a small mining 
town. These warnings to audiences- were 
badly printed and poorly spelled out on cards 
of oil sixes snd aorta, A few samples are 
below appended : 

"Do not moor the pyana as It Is two 
costly to be ntflly shifted." 

"Penut leans an bogs keep out. If you 
mas eat penuts awaller the Holla" 

"N'otli. No intockaycated pearson In this 
Hall * Nobody allowed to stomp feet — Clap 
hsns lasted. No wlcello — no tobsca spltln

don't take any lean on it as Its pads for. 
Ther Is two match imokln round this music

One matinee day, Isst week, a young wo- 
man approached the box office of one of tbe 
theatres obviously wltb tbe usual Intention 
of buying tickets to the performance, but at 
tbe same time wlsbtrg to know where tbe 
prospective seats might be located. With 
tbla In mind, she asked of tbe treasurer: 

"What have you gotr 

"I've godt a very deaty bad cold I" re- 
plied tbe facetious treasurer 

Robert Hardonay, who has been "making- 
good" wltb "The Telephone Girl" Co., In 
tbe West, tells sn experience In a small 
town where the company broke a long jump. 

The dressing rooms numbered but three, 
Into which tbe company divided themselves, 
tbe male members being crowded Into one 
of them. Hardanay arrived late and found 
only one small lamp In the room, which 
gave Insufficient light to make up by. 

"Bay," exclaimed be, to tbe local "prop" 
man, " you'll bare to get me more tight than 

"Well, then," waa the man'a reply, "I'll 
her to git ye a lamp from over home, fer 
ther ain't no more here." 

Before be could return, the actor had 
"made up" In the half-darkneas, and had 
gone on In tbe first scene. With lamp In 
hand, and not knowing that the curtain 
had gone up, the man came on from the 
wings and aald : 

"Mister, here's yer lamp," then suddenly 
turning and aeelng tbe audience, be stood 
rooted to the spot until relieved of his em- 
barrassment by a youngster la tbe front 
row, who yelled : 

"Hello, Bill— goln* with the trouper* 

"Don't know ylt," he quickly responded, 
"they hain't ast me ylt" after which he 
rnded his impromptu scene by making a run 
toward the entrance and disappearing.

New Mlshler Theatre, Altoonm, Pa. 
The New Mlshler Theatre (I. C. Mlebler, 
manager) was opened Feb. IB, with Eleanor 
liobson and her company as the attraction. 
The opening caused the greatest enthusiasm 
among the tneatregolng people, and the 
bouse was sold out at sdvonced prices. 
The new theatre building Is devoted to the- 
atrical purposes only, there being no renting 
space. The exterior ox tbe building Is In 
French style and on classic lines. The front 
is of Indian limestone and ontl-vltreous red 
brick, laid In Flemish bond, classically deco- 
rated with ornamental terra cotta, tin eaves 
of tbe building having a handsome heavy 
ornamental cornice. Tne decoration has been 
richly and Judiciously applied, and the facade 
Impresses every one by Its beauty and dig- 
nity. The general architectural style may be 
claaaed aiXoula XV. In an observation of 
the front, generoas attention has been be- 
stowed upon tbe entrances to the bouse, 
which are notably spacious, there being 
twelve doors, glvlog an open space of at least 
thirty-flve feet for entrance to aod exit at 
the front of the theatre. This theatre stands 
alone on an open apace, wltb a ten-foot 
court Intervening on both sides of tbe build- 
ing, along with Its most accommodating front- 
age on Twelfth Avenue. The lobby Is thirty 
feet wide. It Is In elaborate French style 
of marble and mosaic decoration. The floor 
has been handsomely inlaid with mosaic. The 
celling of the lobby U fifteen feet high, and 
of remarkable classic ornamentation. Tbe 
main ticket offlce Is to the right of tbe lobby, 
with an emergency office for Important ad- 
vance sales directly opposite. The spacious 
lobby— airy and Inviting— leads directly to 
the auditorium with Its fine foyer and ample 
promenade. The dress circle and balcony are 
reached by twin staircases, rising from tbe 
foyer on both sides. The house Is so construct- 
ed In Its entirety tbat tt has been pronounced 

by department Inspectors as one of the safest 
and strongest public bulldlogs In their ex- 
amination. Extreme carefulness has always 
been eierclsed In tbe matter of Are protec- 
tion, the theatre being provided wltb a fire 
line of fourteen hose plugs, twenty-four Rex 
machines, and a Grlonell Glass Disc Auto- 
matic Sprinkler System. To provide this 
system, a six Inch water main has been run 
Into tbe building A steel asbeatos curtain 
rovers >he entire atage proscenium, bung by 
the Improved L. J. Couch method of such 
automatic construction of mechanism tbat 
If a fire should occur on the stage It would 
Instantly operate, and prevent any possi- 
bility of It reaching tbe auditorium. All 
tbe seats on the first floor and balconies are 
upholstered la greea Moroccollne, tbe carpets 
are all of electric red. and the draperies are 
of silk plash, wltb gold fringing. The entire 
decoration of the auditorium Is carried ont 
after tbe style of the Lonls XV period, and the 
body tone of the decoration Is of apple green. 
Tbe ornate front of the balconies, tbe boxes 
and tbe proscenium are In cream and Ivory, 
with architectural form and decorative detail 
wrought la gold. There are four boxes on 
tbe lower floor, with a capacity for eight 
persona each, and alx boxes on the dress 
circle floor, with a capacity of six each. Tbe 
drop curtain Is In admirable harmony wltb 
the decorative design of the house, repre- 
senting a scene entitled "The Reception of 
Marie Antoinette at Trianon." The seating 
capacity of the new theatre approximates 
nineteen hundred, and la divided Into orches- 
tra (the entire first floor}, dress circle (tbe 
entire second floor), and balcony (the entire 
upper floor). The stage of this bouse Is as 
nearly complete as the other portions, and la 
carefully supplied with conveniences for tbe 
actress and actor. The stage proper Is 42ft. 
deep, 84ft wide, and 70ft to the gridiron.

An Incident occurred In GfoTersTltle, N. 7.,

to cling to her for some time. While she 
was playing Midge, the newsboy, tbe leading 
role- In 'The Child of tbe 81ums." she made 
her way to tbe entrance, waiting for her 
cue. One of the stage hands, much absorbed 
In the play, seemed to resent this, as be 
thought he had aa much right to see "the 
show as anyone else, and pushed her ont of

stage end played her scene. After she came 
off tbe stage band came to her and said : "I

No Fear of 



Safety Automatic Revolver 

because the revolver hammer never touches the tirine pin. 
This safety principle, found only in the Iver Johnson Is due 
to the fact that the lever -which transmits the blow from the ham- 
mer to the firing pin is never in position to do so except when the 
trt'wr is pulled all the way back. AH hardware and 
sporting goods dealers sell Iver Johnson Revolvers 
and can verify these facts if they will.

I have before me an Invitation from the 
mnnngement of the Hippodrome to intend 
the opening, on Monday next, of an "Inex- 
plicable" mystery, entliled, "Menetekel." The 
houafl Is responsible for .the following ex- 
planation of tho new creation: "Mcnotekel" 
Is operated by somo Influence which the pub- 
lie tin* vet to learn. When tho curlnln rises 
ii lioiird Is seen on u fully lighted Rtage. Tills 
board connUis nf a simple wooded frame (six 
feel bar seven feet, hy two Inches!, nnd Ik 
rovered wllb white pnper. The frame Is sus- 
pended, entirely free, on two pieces of Hiring, 
tii'ter a short speech by a lady and gentle- 
man (hy name, Mr. nnd Mrs. IConornb). 
■■Menetekel," li must be understood, ns a 
word, cnrrlea with It great significance from 
a lilbllcAl standpoint. At the feast of Bel- 
Hlmznar, which he gave In tho seventeenth 
year of his reign, A. M. iUtlU, he observed n 
mysrierlOiiH handwriting an the wall; Iho mys- 
terious handwriting consisted of hieroglyphic* 
which were oventually Interpreted by Daniel. 
A ball Is placed upon the ltourd or (Tinue — 
It Is* blnck nnd nlioul the slxc of an ordinary 
cricket hall. It Is then commanded to write 
the word, "Menetekel," or whatever other 
word Is desired, either by the lecturer* or 
the members o£ the audience. In order to 
prove thai there Is nobody concealed, and 
ihnt there Is tin absence of mechanical In- 
fluence. Hie hourd is made to swing. Partner. 
so that there may be no collusion between 
either the lecturers nnd Ihe hall, nod also 
the audience. .Mr. Kouorah leaves the singe 
nnd asks somebody or anybody In the audl- 
uni-e to mention to htm. In an undertone, 
either the Initial of n word— the remainder 
of the word to be completed by some person 
In nnv other part of the house — or any full 
ward 'required. Ah noon as the word Is pro- 
nounced Hie lady lecturer orders the bnll to 
write, which It does. Afler havlm* written 
two words Ihe sheet of white pnper Is lorn 
from the bonrd, disclosing a clean sheet. Ant] 
no the inyslerv goes on until we find thnt. 
after whispering n word to the lecturer, the 
bnll writes Iho word without any sign or 
signal whatsoever. . . , . _ .

the fonudalion or his fortune. "The Still 
Alarm" was produced by Mr. Arthur and 
Harry Lacy, who played the leudlng role. 
It was a big success. Later Mr. Arthur

American vaudeville acts arc ao scarce on 
the coutlaent at present that interesting 
news of them can hardly be sent over month-

who ate now.hej'c arc dotug rcry wet), but 
are not prosb+rliif ha In former years, be- 
cause tber lay off now and then. This, how- 
ever, la their own fault, because Hitiv never 
Iftiptlre as to how the Und lays ln advance. 
They will nccept a two weeks* engagement 
in towns where they ought to slas* a month, 
and It's Impossible to return to these cities 
only every second or third year. Then, 
sgnin. viuldevlllc performers who are ronllv 
a big hit have been so often misinformed by 
other iter formers, who keep wrPlugover to 
the iht'fttrlcul papers about the enormous 
•aluritis they earn or run receive: This has 
really done more damage to tbe American 
performer than nitytliliijr else, and I will 
way positively that die average act. over hers 
does not get any more salary than In Amer- 

:- There are about six acta (but have been 
very forlunule over here, one of them work- 
ing regulnrly ten months In tin- year, and 
getting from seven iiUudred to one thousand 
dollars a week. But she has made a re- 
markable reputritloh, orer here, and really 
■ the only vaudeville performer ploying 
houses on percentage. This performer Is 
Haliarct. and her wonderful success is known 
to every manager, performer or agent from 
America who .has been In Kttrope. 

There am two oilier performers over here, 
both men, whose salaries reach eight to Ian

" a. call at tte bos onic* window, throngs 
which tte ever-popuiar Wis Crosby issue* 
tbe blu of pasteboard tbst admits onloiM 
Joe Weber's mirthful company, Id "Twiddle- 
Twaddle," resulted In tbe acquisition for thli 
column, Of two or three amusing Incidents. 

A few dayi efter the drat production, tbe 
treasurer wis startled by en excited German, 
woo ruled op to tbe window and demanded 
to tee tie programme maker, uilng a dialect 
from which even Weber himself could get 

"Well, you'll bare to fo down town to the 
offlee of Frank V. Btraau. who pabltebea all 
theatre proffraoaiea," obligingly replied tbe 

Then, with another rich orerflow of dia- 
lect, tbe man lariated that strum wan not 
the one be wanted, but the one who made np 
tbe programme of tbe production. 

"What do yon want to sea him for?" naked 
the treasurer, at tbe name time explain! m 
that all bnalneai lnterrlew* were held with 
tbe repreaentatlT* of the company. 

At tali tbe excited visitor declared that he 
waa going to me the company for nulldoot 
carlcsforlng of himself and his honored 
name. Be went on to explain that tbe name, 
"Grabf elder," under which the little co- 
median, Weber, merrily carorted and ridicu- 
lously joggled with dialect, wan his own. He 
furthermore demanded that another name 
be aabetltuted, or he would sue for henry 

The treasurer finally crimed tbe angry man 
by explaining that pU?wrlghta bad a right 
to nee any name they saw fit, and should 
be hare any Just cause for suit, so would 
any other Smith, Jones or Brown, whose 
namea were continually In evidence on the- 
atre programmes. Half convinced by tbe 
argument, tbe defender of the "Orahfelder" 
cognomen grabbed up bis packages, which 
be bad dropped In the beat of Insulted 
dignity, and departed, muttering threats, 
however, to sue the owner of tbe show. 

If he only would 1 What a chance for ad- 
vertising space there would be In the story, 
and couldn't Charles Miller, tbe wily wlelder 
of the pen tbnt produces publicity material 
for the company, get In bla fine work I 

A few dayi ago n young woman of rural 
appearance approached tbe name ticket 

"How do you sell them by the aosenr" she 

"No reduction," said Mack Billiard, who 
aasleta the treasurer; "they're sold at the 
same price for a hundred aa for one.'' 

"What's that?" aaked the girl. 

■Two dollars for the best, dollar and n 
half and a dollar." 

"How many klods allowed la the doaenl" 
waa the next question. 

"That's for the buyer to decide," replied 
Billiard. "Ton can get a box, or take soma 
In tbe o r c h estra and some In tbe balcony." 

"I thought they always took 'em In a 
gallery," said the girl- 

"That la aa one prefers to call it," was 
Hilllard's answer. "The boxes are the beet, 
of course." 

"But I don't want to be taken In a box," 
was tbe girl's answer, that somewhat my itl- 
fied the ticket seller as to what she alluded. 
But box office treasurers are need to all aorta 
of queer questions, to which they always 
reply to tbe best of their comprehension of 
the patron's meaning, and let the matter pass 
at that 

"Well, yon needn't," said Hill lard, "the 
first few front rows are just as good take 
them," and the obliging rev resents tire of tbe 
treaeurer proceeded to point out on tbe 
diagram what seata there ware yet unsold. 
"There are twelve good ones, though they're 
not nil together." 

"But I most bare them all at once," In- 
sisted the young woman. 

"Ton can bare them alt at once, of course," 
replied Hllllard, at the same time thinking 
what a long time It took to sell twelve seats, 
"but I can't possibly give them to yon all 

"I don't understand what yon mean," re- 
plied the girl. 

"Ton want twelve seata for to-nlghfa per* 
formance, doa't you?" continued Hllllard. 
"I'm showing you tbe best we can do, 
«nd— ( * 

"I don't want no seats," Interrupted the 
girl, "I want a doaen photographs of myself 
like them samples you've got In the big 
frames at tbe door." 

"But this Is no photograph gallery," ex- 
plained the man at the window. 

"Oh," said the maiden, turning away die- 
appolntedly, "I thought It waa" 


Just before the matinee performance, last 
Saturday, a young couple, whose appearance 
proclaimed them to be back-country visitors 
to the big city, approached the box office. 

"How much for twot" nsked the man of 
Crosby, who was presiding at tbe window. 

"Four dollars." 

"Wbewl" exclaimed the man, placing the 
price on tbe shelf. "They come high, but 
we've not to have 'em — gl'me two." 

As he was about to band over tbe tickets, 
the treasurer noticed that tbe young woman 
standing back of the countryman bad In her 
arms an Infant of only a few months 

"la that baby with your • aaked Crosby. 

"Yes. l fi nine," waa the reply. 

"Sorry," said Crosby, "but no children in 
arme are admitted to theatrical perform- 

"Then si'me a high chafr with the two 
feats," esrlii Intra tbe man, "an* i don't care 

It seems 'twas only yesterday, but then 'twaa 

long ago. 
When people took some pleasure In n good old 

fashioned show. 

And went borne from the plsyfaonse musing 

o'er tbe things there said, 
Tbe playa were not tbe same with which 
nowadays we're fed. 

When "Maggie Mitchell" tripped tbe stage 

and "Fanchon" waa tbe pray, 
"The Hunchback" or "The Honeymoon," 

folks loathed to come away. 
Now silly farces are the thing and problem 

plays the rage, 

oe people quit __ 
should the stage. 

Borne people quit tbe theatre when players 

Now there was "John T. Raymond," who 

rive "Col. Sellers" fame; 
Burgess," In "The County Fair," por- 
trayed that quaint old dame. 
And "Desman Thompson's" "Old Home- 
stead." In which we all would drown 
Our troubles, and watch tbe bill boards to 
welcome him to town. 

Abl Where la peerless "Lotta" now, beneato 
whose magic spell 

and women weep. 
Our "Mary Anderson." sweet "Juliet," would 

ever charm our heart. 
And "Charlotte Cusbman's" "Meg Merrlles" 

waa aa matchless ss ber art. 

"Eats Claxton" aa poor, Mind "Louise,'.' and 

brilliant "Agnes Booth," 
"Rose Eytinge" and "Rose Coghlan" that wse 

acting, sirs, in truth. 
And "J. H. Stoddard," "Charley Thome," 

would drive away dull care. 
They were a matchless band at "Palmer's" 

"Union Square." 

And what Joy It was to see "Robson" and 

"Two Dromlos" like these we'll never see 

And dear, old Grandma "Gilbert" bas for- 
ever passed sway, 

In every part she essayed—her genius Mated 
tbe way. 

Then here's to you, a health to you, you 

merry, Joyous clan, 
Alas, our modern programme In rain for you 

we scan. 

Those were the good, old days, their course 

Is sorely run — 
So here's to kind remembrance — "When We 

Were Twenty-one," 

how much It costs— I'm ependln' money this 

At tbe treasurer's further explanation of 
the regulations concerning the admission of 
children, tbe couple turned to depart, while 
the man consolingly remarked to bis wife : 

"Le'e take a trolley ride, Heme ; they'll let 

us on the cars with a baby — then well go 

sad have an oyster stew; they'll give us a 

high chair at the restaurants." ' >■' 


After the performance of "TwiddleTwad- ' 
cue,' the evening of Feb. 21, the audience waa 
•low In leaving, aa the lobby was crowded, 
because of the pouring rain outside. A nam 
ber of people were stilt In the auditorium 
aa the uahere hastened to their usual duties 
of dressing the chairs and balcony In their 
night clothes. 

Aa the. lengths of white canvas were swung 
over the box railings, from above, two young 
fellows gaxed curiously at the process. 

"I wonder what they're doing," said one 
to tbe other. 

"Most likely decorating for tomorrow," 
waa the reply, "don't you remember that to- 
morrow la Washington's Birthday?" 

"Sure enough," assented the first speaker, 
then giving another observant look at tbe 
canvas fluttering Into place over tbe balcony, 
be queatlonlngly continued: "but I didn't 
know that they decorated with white flags." 

A representative of Frohjnan'ay named 
Friedman, who was formerly In charge dur- 
ing the So them- Mario we engagement, has 
recently gone Into the real estate business. 
Pnrsusnt with the methods of the business, 
he sent advertising matter to his former as- 
sociates In the theatrical business. Among 
these, to Wells Hawks, Frobman's chief rep- 
resentative, he sent an alluring diagram of 
choice country properties, with prodigious 
prices attached thereto, penciled In the mar* 
gin of the page, amounts from forty to fifty 
and Blxty thousand dollars 

Hawka considered this s Joke, knowing 
Friedman to be aware of the fact that he 
was not at present Investing In such high 
priced property, so he relnclosed the circular 
to tho sender, with the addition of a mes- 
sage, which be wrote on tbe opposite margin, 

"These are great weeks. When do you 
come to New York?" 

Charles H. Klngsland tells another story 
about the much-anecdoted local factotum who 
"runs things" at email places of amusement. 
Arriving with bis company at a New Jersey 
town shortly before the hour of the perform* 
sort, Manley, tbe masager, hastened np to 
the hall. Upon Inqnlry for the local mm

The character photographs show Mr. Forrest as Corlolanoe, Vlrglnlua and Metamors, On 
tbe side of the case hangs an engraving of Mr. Forrest made in London in 1886. The open 
door leads to the library annex, where two gloss cases bold the many swordB used by him ; 
also a Roman dagger, once the property of the great French actor, Talma, and the fighting 
sword of John Philip Kcmble. ' In the bottom of tbe. case lies the hoof of the famous racs

"Quality Street," the engaging domestic 
comedy of J. M. Barrio, with which . the 
Hrough -Fleming Co. began Its return season 
in Sydney on Saturday night, at the Criterion 
Theatre, la very delicately constructed, and 
its first two acts, employed by the author \p. 
describe tbe atmosphere of the piece, are ho 
quiet that they may he disappoint lug to those 
who like Vigorous life and omphalic move- 
ment on the "tage. . The play becomes strong- 
er in the third and fourth acts, but, alto- 
gether, It is n fabric of gossamer — beautiful) v 
wrought, but so light and elegant that ft 
will ■ probably ilnd Its warmest admirers 
among those who are able to appreciate theMQ 
qualities at their beirt. The performance 
was 'notable for Beatrice Day's .consistent 
portrayal of Susan Tliroascll, the acting of 
itobert Brough, in the last two acts, ami tho 
artistic touch 'which Bessie Major brought tu 
her Interpretation of tho role of Putty, the 
eerviug maid. 

"There and Back," a farce, sparkling with 
good nnmor and merriment, was presented 
with great success by tho Strand Theatre 
Corned;- Co., it the Palace Theatre, on Sat- 
urday. evening. It is one of the best things 
thst this popular company has yet produced 
lft Sydney, which is saying a good deal' for 
It, Mr, Dallas, as Lewson, Infuses a full 
measure of fun Into the pemunutlon, and 
iioreuce Lloyd and Maud Chetwynd extract 
Plenty of humor from the parts or the adven- 
turers, Marie and Mrs. Lewson. As a cur- 
tain ralBer, Mr. Dallas and Maud Cbetwyad 
engaged In a musical skit, "The Bazaar Olrl," 
which was in every way a success. 

. Audri Messagei's; dainty opera, "Verou- 
liiue." with Its charming coloring. Its pretty 
music, and its exhilarating spectacle, at- 
tracted another crowded audience to Her Mil- 
Jcsty'B Theatre on Saturday night. Mar- 
garet Thomas, Florence Young, Clara Clif- 
ton, George Luurl, Ualgh Jackson. C. It. Unu- 
tock'and those associated with them lu tho 
leading characters, hove ample opportuui 
1 ues for distinguishing themselves, and In 
ito sense fall to meet the demands made upo/i 

The poBstbllttles of pantomime are beyond 
all speculation. William Anderson's Co., 
performing at the Theatre Ftoyal, In "Sin- 
lad, the Sailor," are continually liudlng new 
sources of fun and frolic, and by thia means 
the second edttfcm of tbe Christmas frivol- 
ity is made palatable to Its aiauy lmtrous. 
The two performances given ou Saturday 
were both largely attended, Marie Camp- 
bell, Bert Uulley, Maud Thornton, Mr. 
Qucaly and the host of people associated 
with them provided a particularly bright 
and pleaunt entertainment, lu which there 
Is humor, spectacle and music. 

'There were several first appearances at 
the Tlvoll Theatre Saturday, the new-comers 
combining with the former strong company 
In presenting a verr flue programme. A trio 
of trick 'cycllBts, Lotto, Lllo and Otto, bud 
a remarkable reception, uud retired/at the 
end of a brisk ana captivating exhibition lu 
rounds of boisterous applause. The .turn is 
full of snap and go, and is aided by a flue 

Slece of comedy work by one of the company 
1 the garb or a policeman. Mile. Cerho", a 
serlo-eomlc comediemie and character- vocal- 
ist, also established herself In public favor. 
The Sisters Warner, another brace of new- 
comers, also achieved an artistic success. 
Post Mason sang two songs, of. which the 
public never seemed to tfrc ■ "The Bundo- 
tiero'" and "Would You Care," and was 'gen- 
erously upplauded for each. Harry Biok-, who made his reappearance for a short 
season only, was applauded for his contribu- 
tions, "Give Mv Love to Leicester Square" 
and "Tbe Best World." 

.la Melbaune, "Utopia, Limited,' as pre- 
sented by Williamson's Gilbert and Sullivan 
Co., has had a successful ruu at tbe Prin- 
cess Theatre, uod Is now lu Its last weefe. 
Tlttell Bruuc revived "Sunday * at Her Ma- 
jesty's Theatre ou Saturday night. In tho 
presence of a crowded and appreciative audi- 
ence "The Lights of London" Is as popu- 
lar as ever at the Theatre Royal, and at the 
Opera House, the two eccentric - cnuindluaa. 
Oflmmluu and Gore, and tbe Eight English' 
Promroses, are the star turns.
